The trend of the Ugly Sweater Party has spilled over from America across the pond to our latitudes in recent years. But not only in the USA this form of party has been enjoying great popularity for a long time, but also in Great Britain. The party, which translates as "ugly sweater party", is celebrated every year at Christmas time and, so to speak, heralds Christmas. In the US, December 18th is an official holiday, "National Ugly Sweater Day". Since Christmas sweaters with the most unusual motifs are particularly popular as gifts in England and the USA, this party trend arose. This party is not about the fanciest outfit, but the star of the party is the one who wears the ugliest and most unusual sweater.

Give your Christmas party an individual note

The Ugly Sweater Parties naturally also require a suitable decoration. Everything is allowed, what you associate with the Christmas season and of course the motto: the kitsch the better. So you can decorate your apartment or the party room generously with fairy lights in all colors. Also Christmas neon signs or luminous figures, z. B. moose, snowmen, angels, candy canes, elves and many more are allowed. You can give the walls a Christmassy look with tinsel, Christmas balls and Christmas decals. Those who like it in a very stylish way can set up sledges as seating and create their own winter wonderland through artificial snow. A Christmas tree, Christmas candlesticks and the mistletoe should not be missing at an Ugly Sweater Party. The classic Christmas colors red, gold, silver and green dominate the choice of colors. But all other colors are also allowed.

The following applies to all party guests when it comes to disguise: The most important accessory of the evening is the "Ugly Sweater". The more creative, more detailed and unusual the sweater or knitted vest, the better. You can freely choose the rest of the outfit. To complement the sweater, for example, halos, rhinestones for the face, glasses, hats, fancy skirts or trousers and of course shoes in the style of the elves. Or you choose a completely normal outfit and let the Ugly Sweater speak for itself. Christmas delicacies are particularly popular when it comes to snacks and drinks. Mulled wine, eggnog, hunter's tea, Christmas beer and Feuerzangenbowle are stylish drinks for your Ugly Sweater Party. As snacks, we recommend home-baked cookies, Christmas apples, potato pancakes and all the goodies that are associated with the Christmas season. You can serve the food decoratively on plates with Christmas prints. Glasses with Christmas motifs or cups in the shape of boots are ideal for drinks. When it comes to music, you have a wide range of different Christmas music available.

A mix of classic Christmas carols and modern Christmas music mixed with techno and hip-hop as well as childlike Christmas carols guarantees great party fun and variety. The nice thing is that most of your party guests know the music and can therefore sing along. There is also the option of incorporating karaoke into the party.
